Abstract (Summary)

A Maze Lives Inside the Sky is a collection of poems written during the course of two years in the M.F.A. Creative Writing Program at California State University, Long Beach. Many of the poems in this collection are written in the form of the prose poem. The prose poem functions as an intimate and open space for the reader to drift freely between sentences and thoughts without having to pause at the end of a line. The poems in A Maze Lives Inside the Sky examine individual moments in time that attempt to minor states of consciousness. Along with topics of love, childhood, growing up, mortality, and faith in God, the main focus of the poems in this thesis collection is the line of communication between people and the need for closeness and empathy.
